Château Pontet-Canet 2013

Bordeaux - Pauillac - Red - 13° Château Pontet-Canet Château Pontet-Canet 2013 1050/13
  • Parker : 90-92
  • J. Robinson : 14,5
Playing more on delicacy than on the strength of the wood aging, Pontet Canet beautifully expresses the fruitiness, minerality and elegance of Pauillac. With low yields, only 15 hectoliters per hectare, this wine is in keeping with the 2011 and 2012 vintages. Elegant and subtle, Chateau Pontet-Canet capitalized on a difficult vintage, selecting only the most suitable berries to create an exceptional wine. 2013: a surprising vintage.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this biodynamically farmed vineyard (a rarity, but increasing in the Bordeaux viticulture), had tiny yields of 15 hectoliters per hectare. This doesn't translate into super concentration, but this is certainly an outstanding effort in an extremely difficult vintage. The wine has a dense purple color, and classic creme de cassis, licorice and mocha and espresso roast notes that Pontet-Canet has displayed recently. The wine is medium-bodied, possesses excellent purity, equilibrium and sweet, but noticeable tannin. This is by no means at the level of the great vintages that have been so common of late from this incredible property on the Plateau of Pauillac across from Mouton Rothschild, but it's certainly one of the vintage's more noteworthy efforts. Give it 2-3 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 15 or so years.
